You may know all of the reasons that spending one-on-one time with your kids is important, and you’ve probably experienced the positive effects of having this time with them. But these days most of us are just trying to get through the day, so finding the time and energy for one-on-one time seems impossible — especially when you’re dealing with their resistance to spending time with you… or with meltdowns when their time with you is over.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why kids and teens need individualized attention… but not as often as you’d think
- How to address obstacles that prevent us from spending time (and being present) with them
- Simple tips for finding time for, and getting the most out of, one-on-one time
